Palacios, Tomas Captain America : The Winter Soldier : The S.H.I.E.L.D. Report 64 pgs. 2014. Marvel. $10.
You, the reader, have been invited to read top-secret files associated with the battle between Captain America and the Winter Soldier in Washington, D.C. These files contain character overviews, relevant histories, images, place descriptions, and equipment details.
Kids will readily pick this up because of its cover, illustrations, and connection to a favored superhero, but only serious fans will read it from beginning to end. This book contains background, expository information about this fictitious event, not an adventure story.
